THE MESSAGE BOARD POINT CHATTER IS NOW CLOSED TO ALL NEW POSTS.
I did ok last weekend on my trip to Burnet County. I got my first drill ever (perd drill; its a little rough but still cool to me), a couple high quality points, a real nice little grinding stone, a chopper and a few brokes.
I believe the one on the left is a Fairland and the one on the right is a Marshall. Both are of very high quality. I almost cried over that Marshall having a broken ear.
I am not sure what the broke point on the right is. Anyone got any ideas? Maybe another Marshall.
Another close up.
Yes. The broke on the right side is a Marshall. Perhaps made into a graver. SWEET !
looks like you had yourself a fine day. that one in your hand that you almost cried over, looks more like a bulverde to me than a marshal. anyway you look at it your not alone, i think we all get that sinkin feeling when we find an artifact so close to perfection. dang dingers
very cool I have some that have made me say "WHY DID YOU HAVE TO BE BROKEN!!!!!!!!!!!".
I'm thinking that little broken ear might be worth having repaired. What do ya'll think that would do for the value of the point? There was a guy digging out there that said he would have offered me $150 for it if the ear wasn't broken off and he has been collecting, buying and selling for almost 40 years.
You got some nice finds Hal, looks like you didn't have too bad of a day. I am rather fond of those little manos myself. I think they add a neat touch to the arrowhead collection.
very nice finds, hubby needs to take a fishing trip down that way lol
Hey gee10 is this from near ******* on the lampasas river? I thought about going out there how is it?
I'm out of lgaeue here. Too much brain power on display!
